Exit Stage Right JustRead Blog Tour 
Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for the Exit Stage Right by Jennifer Wilcock, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Exit Stage Right by Jennifer Wilcock Title: Exit Stage Right
Author: Jennifer Wilcock
Publisher: Word Alive Press
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: November 30, 2019


She wants to dance, and she’s willing to sacrifice everything, everyone, to get it. 


Coco Bradley is a talented ballet dancer, and when an opportunity arises for her to audition for the prestigious Spencer School of the Performing Arts, she’s not about to let anyone stop her— including her parents, her friends, and any of the prima donnas of the art school. A pastor’s kid, Coco has grown up serving God and people, but gaining entry to Spencer means leaving behind all the expectations that come with growing up in the pastorate, as well as the dead-end town of Wyattsville. 

Coco lives by the creed “Ballet First,” but she’s about to find out in a painful way that there’s more to life than dancing.

Opportunities, fame, and love all come calling as Coco chases her dream. But in going after what she wants, will she lose the things that matter most?

EXCERPT

This isn’t happening. But the long, cold fingers of panic squeezing Coco Bradley’s throat told a different story. 

The backstage door to the theater slammed shut as the gurney she was riding on was wheeled out into the crisp night air. Swirling red lights flashed in her face, confirming her worst fears. She took a deep breath to steady herself, but the smell of a hundred different restaurants and street vendors, as well as exhaust fumes, only made her feel more nauseated. She usually loved the smells of the big city. Tonight, though, she had to swallow hard to keep the contents of her stomach down, as well as the fear and panic that threatened to overwhelm her.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jennifer Wilcox
Jennifer Willcock grew up telling herself stories in the middle of the night to keep away the monsters that lurked in the dark. Once she realized there weren’t any real monsters, she kept telling stories. A voracious reader, Jennifer reads many different genres, but she never outgrew young adult fiction. A degree in English Literature enabled her to keep her love affair with reading and writing alive. A blogger, speaker, and writer, she belongs to the MOPS Network of Speakers and the Word Guild of Canada. 

Jennifer studied ballet through the Royal Academy of Dance during her teen years and into adulthood. She has taught in private and community settings and choreographed productions for her church over the years. In 2017, Jennifer decided she was brave enough to try and write fiction and joined NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November. She “won” it, writing 50,000 words in thirty days. The result is Exit Stage Right, a dream she thought was impossible to achieve. In 2019, the novel made the shortlist of the Word Alive Press fiction writing contest.

Besides being a mom to two sons, she is married to Mark, a pastor. She works part-time in the local library, where she’s inspired every day to write a book that will one day be on the shelves. The family’s pet dwarf rabbit, Whiskers, is her muse as he sits at her feet while she writes. She’d love for you to connect with her online.

  11. So what advice would you give someone in the church who tells you that dance should not be a part of church/worship? This book speaks to me. Thanks for your review.
